      fry pictures sept. 26.

      I've been having problems photographing the fry as the big fish become less afraid, they break up the fry party. Figured out best way to photograph the littles. Beach 'em!

      Super Kindai, in your post # 59, you show 3rd cull keepers (hariwake?) with two shades of beni. is there a preference for one shade of yellow/gold over another? or is it just a difference. the numbers next to each fish: were they ranked in some order?
      re: my pale yellow/yellow-and-white fry.
      if they are one color are they ogons? two colors hariwake?
      i see some of my fry with darker beni on plat that look to me like ki-kisui.
      i see some that are getting small black dots. are the dots blemishes? or is the fish on its way to becoming something else, like midori.
      any possibility that the red-and-white fish are aya wakabas?
      or is all too soon to tell?
      thanks, SK.
      the mud is teaching me a lot, but your examples for comparison and your interpretation is helping more.

      btw, some of the fry are over 3" now. phew. still feeding EA Health but mixing in with Microbe-lift wheat germ with probiotics. the water temp was 60 degrees F. last night. air temps going to 65 degrees today.

      some specific fish

      SK, have posted a fish with black spots coming up -- becoming midori? or becoming crapagoi?
      also a red-and white one that makes me ask if it is aya wakaba? and some with strong sheen on a platinum body with a gold head. hariwake?
      also, one with a darker beni on platinum -- kikusui? or?
      i'm seeing a lot of fish with what looks to me like good hikari. high sheen on skin, eyelids, leading ray? yes?

      eric, lol. thanks for the applause and the encouragement.
      it's raining out. and a heron was spotted this morning.
      will the little fish grow discernably larger in 24 hours?
      will i spot one we've never seen before?
      will they reach viable size before the weather dips?
      stay tuned to "Life in the Mud. Ki-shusui With a Twist."
      we'll be back right after the break. (Tomorrow)

      winter plans

      the size of the little fish -- don't know if they qualify as fingerlings -- 2.25" on the bulk of them, 3.0" on the first spawn, and plenty below 2" from the third spawn, must have been beginning of august.

      will be trying to insulate the pond just a little. have found an intense solar blanket from a swimming pool supply company. link below. the plastic is 16 mil, says it can import and hold solar heat. the goal here is not to heat the entire pond, just to have an area that is a bit warmer for the littles.

      will put a bucket heater in the shallow end, also a disk aerator between the dock and the solar blanket cover which is an 18 x 36 oval . the dimensions of the pond are 150 x 40 so this solar blanket will only cover a small area in the shallow end.

      also, have ordered two air pillows 4.5' x 15' which we are planning to lay end to end, making a spine under the blanket along the 36' length, sort of a tent effect, so that snow, ice, won't sink it.

      here's the link to the solar blanket.

      http://www.intheswim.com/Pool-Covers...-above-ground/

      RE: FISH BEHAVIOR LAST THREE DAYS:
      on sept. 26 adult fish were getting too friendly, interrupting feeding the young by going into shallow water to feed. babies began swimming into the shallows to be photographed.


      sept. 28 -- freak out.
      babies didn't come to be fed. big ones snapping at surface. food being left over.

      i thought, predators: what kind?
      kingfisher in the area. raccoon footprints under the dock. we tightened up security by stapling deer fencing to front and rear of dock, then running more electric fence to the front of the dock.

      spoke to fish hatchery friend yesterday. he said, "my fish are acting weird."
      he was having same behavior, yet, his bird predators are moving south (ospreys). and he says raccoons really don't get lucky much in mud pond.
      relieved that his fish, twenty miles from mine, were acting the same.

      now, thinking -- full moon? drop in temps? earthquakes and butterfly wings?
      thoughts, anyone.

      re: new pictures i'm posting.
      i put a length of deer netting in the pond to measure the fish. the knots in the line are at every 1" so there's a rough measuring stick.

      These pics taken just before the change in fish behavior.
      have posted some hariwakes and also some non-hariwake cutesters because the are ... adorable. i see a few who might become ki shusui -- we'll see.

      checked the water temp and it's 55 about 8 inches down. i'm thinking that's it. sudden dip in temp. could be nearing the end of the feeding season. big fish were up after a lot of lag time, but i think the littles are protesting the cold. interestingly, the big fish seem to be hanging out under the ugly, regular strength solar blanket i put out to give them a place to hang out when heron comes around.

      i've turned off the very turbulent aeration and am glad i ordered the new, bigger, even more improved solar cover.
